10/19/11 NXT

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Tyler Reks: *1/4

Kaitlyn vs. Maxine: 3/4*

Percy Watson & Titus O'Neil vs. JTG & Derrick Bateman: *3/4

You know, I finally watched that opening NXT redemption intro with "Wild and Young" playing. I've forgotten that those already-eliminated guys were even on the show already.

Whoa, we have a challenge? Remember, Darren Young was suspended, so it's just Titus and Bateman for this Capture the Flag challenge. I don't even give a crap about the Redemption points anymore. Do they even matter? Striker made this challenge 15 Redemption points. The worst part in all this is Bateman now doesn't care about the points. Fifteen more points for Titus. Are you serious, bro?

Yoshi and Reks had a relatively average match. I dunno, I'm not a huge fan of Yoshi's top-rope spin kick finisher. I liked the high standing kick to the head, but maybe Punk wants that move for himself? Anyway, Hawkins and Reks tried to beat up Yoshi but the Usos saved the day.

AJ and Kaitlyn on NXT, probably the best choice for them right now. Maxine and Kaitlyn in this one. Whoa, wait, Kaitlyn's gonna cut a promo? Hey, promo partly in Spanish! OK, hopefully they won't remind me of the catastrophic match they had on NXT Season 3. Nice move by Maxine with the standing dragon sleeper. I liked Kaitlyn's submission finisher. Vastly improved from their NXT rookie days, but then again, they coulda only gone up from where they were.

JTG basically volunteers to be Bateman's tag partner tonight.

Titus wearing the black and pink trunks tonight to support Breast Cancer awareness, nice gesture. If he keeps wearing that, maybe he can claim to have ties with the Hart family. Wait, JTG's been in WWE for six years? No freakin' way! Titus gets the hot tag tonight. Titus really on a roll here. He's pretty over with the crowd and Percy will only help him out in that. I think Titus is ready for the big time right now.
